End of Half Term News Letter

Dear Parents / Carers,

A warm hello to you all. We are coming to the end of another packed half term where your children have been experiencing a whole range of exciting trips and visitors to enrich their learning.  I hope you find this half term’s newsletter useful in sharing some of the highlights.

I look forward to seeing you at our parent evenings on Tuesday 6th and Wednesday 7th March. (Mrs Jeffrey’s 2nd evening will be Thursday 8th March.)

 

Staffing News - Time to say “Thank You and Goodbye:”

We have a few staff moving onto ‘pastures new’ this half term.

Mrs Carmel Mahoney has secured a new management post in a small private nursery and we wish her well in her new venture.

Mr Des Valentine has taken the decision to spend more time with his lovely family. We would like to thank him for all his hard work when working with the children in school and also the massive contribution he makes in his role on our school Parent Group.

Finally, a big thank you to Master Dan for all his patience and hard work working with groups of children in his Nurture role.

We wish you all the very best for the future. Thank you.

Darren Harris, Inspirational Paralympian  Visit

 

On Thursday 1st February, we were lucky enough to have an athlete, who represented England for the Paralympic football team (Darren Harris), come to our school and run a sponsored circuit with each of the classes. A huge well done to all the children, who displayed the most amazing determination, enthusiasm and resilience throughout the whole afternoon! We managed to raise over £800 from this, which will go towards buying sports equipment for our school.

A HUGE thank you for your support!

KINGSWOOD RESIDENTIAL

Last weekend lots of our children from Years 3 and 4 spent the weekend at the Kingswood Centre in Staffordshire. The children all participated in some amazing activities such as: zip wire, climbing, quad biking, laser quest, fencing and much more. Your children were a delight to spend the weekend with, they embraced all of the challenges, pushed themselves, showed great resilience and self-belief and made brilliant friendships with the children from Wyken Primary.  It was a pleasure to see the children enjoying themselves with activities they would not normally experience.

Commando Joe

This week the children participated in a Bear Gryll’s challenge, they had to make a vehicle which could transport troops through the desert. They got very creative with the equipment, each team had a team leader and the children worked well to produce some fantastic results. 

Here is a brilliant buggy created by some of our year 6 class.

Finally, our next training day will take place on Monday 26th February. On this day school will be closed to all children. Thank you for your continued support in all areas of school life which I greatly appreciate.

Kind Regards,

Lindsey Taylor

Headteacher
